  2. scientific name (click here –  Scientific Names of all the organisms)
  3. picture(s) of the organism
  4. Where it lives (location on earth, habitat, etc.)
  5. Trophic level (herbivore, omnivore, carnivore, and/or primary, secondary tertiary consumer).
  6. Adaptations for survival (think protection, defense, mimicry, camouflage, feeding, etc.)
  7. Anything else awesome about your organism!!!
